Family Trails

Explore our collection through different themes with these fun and friendly Family Trails.

Designed by Birmingham-based illustrator, Maxene Brown, especially for visiting families, these resources are free to print at home in advance of your booked visit or to download to your personal device.

Use them to spark your creative ideas and meet artworks and characters in the Barber’s galleries.

The trails are designed to be printed in a landscape A4 format.

No printer? No problem! A small number of trails will be available from our Visitor Services Team.

Please ask a member of our team at the top of the landing, before entering the galleries. Please be safe and take any pre-printed trails home with you, and return any laminated ones to our team.
